On Today's Show

On the ground, from Alaska to Turkmenistan to Washington.

In the 3:30 EST hour, activist,author and scourge of the "ex-gays," Wayne Besen, joins us on his return from Alaska, where Sarah Palin's church promoted a "conversion" therapy program for gays, trying to turn them heterosexual. Wayne will give us the report from the front on Palin, LGBT issues and this election.

At 4:30 EST, Ken Silverstein, Washington editor of Harper's magazine comes back on the show to talk about his new book, Turkmeniscam: How Washington Lobbyists Fought to Flack for a Stalinist Dictatorship. On assignment for Harper's and armed with fake business cards, Silverstein went deep undercover in Washington and beyond as a corporate henchman for the repressive government of Turkmenistan, and he found plenty of beltway lobbyists willing to whitewash the regime in return for big bucks.
